Do laws matter?

I put the update in GCHQ

When all agree to abide by a law it is called a social contract in English. “An agreement among the members of a society to cooperate for mutual social benefits, by safeguarding individual freedom for state protection.” The Oxford dictionary puts it this way: “Agreement among the members of a society or between a society and its rulers about the rights and duties of each.”

The U.K. and the U.S. authorities have broken this agreement so badly in so many different ways that the future is not looking very good. Until they agree to keep within this social contract I will simply tell them at every opportunity to fuck off. Hope you do the same.

I like this story because it challenges and does not just accept and roll over and play dead.

“The National Arbitration Forum has just handed down its decision in respect to the three domain names locked down at Public Domain Registry in response to the City of London Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit takedown requests. The decision is in favour of easyDNS and orders the three names to be transferred to us.”

One thought on “Do laws matter?

  1. Privacy International in October 2014 made a criminal complaint to the National Cyber Crime Unit of the National Crime Agency, urging the immediate investigation of the unlawful surveillance of three Bahraini activists living in the U.K. by Bahraini authorities using the intrusive malware FinFisher supplied by British company Gamma.

    Moosa Abd-Ali Ali, Jaafar Al Hasabi and Saeed Al-Shehabi, three pro-democracy Bahraini activists who were granted asylum in the U.K., suffered variously from years of harassment and imprisonment. Investigation and analysis by human rights group Bahrain Watch showed that while
    Moosa, Jaafar, and Saeed were residing in the U.K., Bahraini authorities targeted the activists and had their computers infected with the surveillance Trojan FinFisher.

    The complaint argues that the actions of the Bahraini authorities qualifies as an unlawful interception of communications under section 1 of the U.K.’s Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000. By selling and assisting Bahraini authorities, the complaint argues that Gamma is liable as an accessory under the Accessories and Abettors Act 1861 and/or encouraged and assisted the offence under the Serious Crime Act 2007.

All for the lack of an interactive firewall and an up-to-date virus scanner and a basic understanding of PC security ).
